    Ohh nice... how's happy valley? Just focus your attention on your bugeye, anything you want to do to the blob you can do to your bugeye... and I like the bugeye better IMHO and I think the bugeyes are lighter weight as well...

    but happy valley is just dandy, can't complain. but I don't necessarily want my car faster I just want the newer year of a wrx. I like sitting at stage 2 don't feel any need to upgrade more.

    If bugeyes are lighter, it's negligible. Cars101 pins 2003 and 2004 at 3085 pounds alike, and I'd believe it. There were a few updates on the 2004 IIRC, including dual-ring synchros on first and multi-phase struts as well as updated steering rack bushings. Still, that's just not enough to warrant a switch IMO.

    Yeah... you could do a fron clip swap, so you'd have the 04 front end... it would be kinda expensive, but a fraction of the cost to set the problems right with the blob... plus you allready know the bugeye and you know how it runs, so why change?

    LOL


    EDIT:
    Besides, bugeyes respond better to basic mods (with the exception of those stupid phantom cylinder misfire codes)

    I know I shouldn't change it would just be nice to have the car I've wanted, but that's why they say never settle get what you want.
